Kate Micucci's Name Not As Dirty As It Sounds, She Tells Conan (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Kate Micucci, who is one half of the musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates and also plays Shelley on "Raising Hope," stopped by "Conan" on Monday to talk about her upbringing, her mistaken belief about the coolness of trombones and most importantly, her belated lesson that her last name sounds like something dirty.

The multi-talented Micucci has a running show at the Steve Allen Theatre in Los Angeles called "Playin' with Micucci." (Say it out loud.) She makes it clear that the show has "cookies and puppets," and the name is the most filthy part of the show. As an added bonus, Conan gets adorably awkward as she talks about the discovery that her last name could serve as a double entendre.

Fans of Bart Simpson's prank phone calls should be sure to watch this one, for Kate's possibilities of what she could name her kids with her last name.
